Could anyone help me
I use Mcafee Security on a computer running Windows XP and ISP AOL I am experiencing problems running AOL software as mcsymon.exe runs at 100% and will not allow AOL software to pass the checking password stage before timing out.
I currently buy Mcafee direct but I note that there is an "AOL version" is this a fundermentally different product? Or are they one of the same? If so could anyone offer some advice?

Many Thanks

RE: AOL/Mcafee

Try the fixes suggested in this thread, particularly from post # 4 onwards: http://community.mcafee.com/showthread.php?t=222213&highlight=aol+9.0

AOL McAfee may be last year's version still, but that would be the only difference I would imagine.
